Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea that you discover all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
